Don-do Yaki festival was held at Gokoku Shrine as usual. Don-do Yaki festival is a new year event that new year's ornaments and old talismans are burned.
Maybe because I visited this park at a shiny midmorning, there were more worshipers than last year. Furthermore, there were several groups of youth that made the place more lively.
Recorded Gagaku music was played through PA Speakers, similar to last year.
I wish you a happy new year.
